VRT teletext has done it again

'Martens nominates Fed Cup Team'

which will in include Malisse, Rochus, Rochus and Vliegen

The US better already select both Williams sisters if the want to stand any chance of beating us :lol: :p

I wonder who's responsable for putting up these pages :rolleyes:

I find it really amazing how it's possible that they mess up time and time again. I participated two years ago at selections for free lance writer at VRT Teletekst and the tests were very difficult.

You could attribute this to a silly mistake, but it indeed goes beyond that. It seems the people who write this aren't really into tennis, hence if the read it again to spot errors they simply fail to notice something's not right.

I don't mind too much in the tennis related articles (since I know more about tennis than them anyway ;)), but if I read some articles about a sport I don't know much about, who's gonna tell me I'm informed correctly?

So true. Seeing all the errors in tennis related articles has made me aware reliability of most media is not as high as it should be...

Look at it this way: how many people in the world are there whose job is teletext-writing (or proof-reading)? And how many people are there who know the difference between Fed Cup & Davis Cup? (Be honest now.)

So what are the chances of those two groups of people overlapping? Pretty small I'd guess.

Belgium wants to ensure they win at least one of the competitions. The biggest attraction is seeing Malisse, Rochus, Rochus and Vliegen in ultra-tight miniskirts. I wonder what the boys will wear underneath their skirts? At least their shorts already had netting in them. ;)

They also still switch ATP/WTA around sometimes! (so do some of the commentators : they talk about how many ATP-titles Kim has,... :rolleyes:
Really annoying! :(

I remember Carl Huybrechts talking about Antwerp as an ATP-tournament with Kim standing next to him. She took his microphone and said it's WTA and not ATP!!
:p

It's terrible that they did this, I read an interview with Robin and how disappointed he was, why would they change?
